in gaza in just a couple of minutes. but i'm also thankful tonight to be able to report that the election has finally concluded in arizona, where it took them 14 days to count votes and announce the results this year. in the end, it turns out that all three competitive congressional races in that state went to the democrats. but the competitive u.s. senate race for republican jon kyl's old seat, that seat stayed republican. and yes, the county sheriff who did the whole taxpayer-funded stunt about having his cold case posse uncover the fraud of president obama's birth certificate, that sheriff did get re-elected, barely. last time he won by a 13-point landslide. this time he won by much less than that, but did get re-elected. and that public publicity-hungry arizona sheriff is not the only arizona official who has lately been fixated on the president's birth certificate. the arizona secretary of state this year threatened to keep president obama off the ballot in arizona for this year's election. because, you know, kenya, or whatever. and because that is the record of arizona's secretary o

won re-election fairly handily, but so did republican incumbents in the house. these are some stunning statistics that gerrymandering has created. 93% of the 205 house republicans who ran for re-election won. 88% of them won with 55% of the vote or more. the president received between 51% and 52% of the vote. once the votes are finally all counted. and even though everyone in washington may be saying the right thing, those facts make forging a deal structurally very difficult. on monday senator dick durbin admitted what we've been hearing behind the scenes. very little has been accomplished on negotiations on the staff level. >> now for ten days not much has happened. there's been a big thanksgiving break. a lot of turkey and stuffing. but now let's get back to business. >> although the white house said they remain optimistic, there doesn't appear to be a plan for another leadership meeting until progress is made between the white house team negotiating a deal that's led by secretary geithner but the house republicans, specifically in boehner's shop. in the meantime, to create the appe

bush's second term. when barack obama was elected the first time, they summed it up with this head line. "black man given nation's worst job." that was for the start of his first term. might be more apt for second term. the second term is when the job turns out to be a difficult job for presidents. if you go back to woodrow wilson in his second term trying to join the league of nations, that was pretty much the end of wilson. that was his second term. when it was truman in his second term during the korean war, he fired general mcarthur. the country responded by throwing parades for the general who got fired. and harry truman left office with approval ratings that dick cheney would kill for, but for everyone else would see that as a disaster. second terms are almost always seen as a disaster, then at least when the big disappointments happen and often the failures. when the soviet union beat us, when the soviet union beat the united states to put the first space satellite into orbit, when no nation had put something like that -- up in space and had it stick there and the soviets did it

't obviously want to see a democratically elected autocrat take the place of an undemocratically elected dictator. which was the case before that. >> holly williams is in cairo this morning. what's the latest there now? >> reporter: good morning, terrell. here in egypt we saw a lot more violence yesterday. in cairo, protesters who were angry with president morsi fought running street battles with the police. protesters throwing rocks, police firing back with tear gas. one person was killed when a crowd attacked the headquarters of the muslim brotherhood, the islamist group from which the president draws much of his support. beyond the violence you get the sense the president's opponents don't quite know what to do. some people are trying to mount a legal challenge to his new powers. given the fact that he's now made himself immune to the courts, that may be useless. terrell? >> is this likely to be resolved in negotiations or could we see this turn into a long, drawn-out affair with protests similar to what we saw during the ouster of former president hosni mubarak? >> reporter: many peo

, this is not an ancient pledge, these are pledges that get discussed every election cycle, democrats in the last two cycles have attacked all the republicans who took the pledge. so they have been reinforced in the fact that voters know that they made that commitment and they got elected making that commitment to voters. >> i just want to be precise on what you consider to be a tax increase. we know an increase in the marginal tax rates, that's a tax increase. but what about capping deductions? from your standpoint of the pledge, would that be considered a violation of the pledge to cap deductions, as some republican lawmakers are now suggesting? >> this is not a trick question. the pledge says no raising rates, no broadening the base unless rates come down dollar for dollar. the pledge is only two sentences but they are very clear. one of the reasons why eliminating deductions and credits, obama wants a trillion plus dollars worth of tax increase that way, is that if you do that, you've just got a tax reform for decades to come, because how do you reduce marginal tax rates so we can become competit

of following chambliss' suit? >> i think so, fredricka. a lot of republicans believe elections have consequences, and president obama was pretty clear in the election if he was re-elected, he was going to let the bush tax cuts expire on upper income taxpayers. and most americans seem to agree with him. you know if you ask 99% of the american people if you should raise taxes on the other 1% and not them, i think you can guess what they would do. elections have consequences. that's where we are. i think you will see some other republicans. >> this is quite the tight rope for a lot of republicans. even john boehner was reticent in saying, okay, i'm ready to raise taxes. he still is talking about maybe the health care reform act taking some sort of hit. but then therein lies the question that so many americans, they want to see a compromise. what is it going to take? what is going to be the area where either side is willing to compromise? >> well, i think republicans are going to want to see some real spending cuts. the situation has changed. we are in an untenable situation, spending s

after the other right after re-election. first terms are about being re-elected. second terms should be about building a legacy and leaving something behind. i think we should be watching closely what happens with the fiscal cliff. because if they are able -- if republicans in congress and the president are able to get together and actually do something, i think it's a good omen for what's ahead. if they can't, we're in for a touch four years. he'll have a tough time passing his agenda. as americans we should all be rooting for him because we're in this together. there are big hairy problems to tackle. i think it's a good thing what we're hearing right now out of the republican leadership and white house where everyone seems to be holding hands right now singing kumbaya and wanting to get something done. i say we pray for that and see if it actually happens. >> i'm with you. i'm going to drop to my knees right now. third topic. we have to talk about black friday. i wanted to ask both of you, how long do you think it will be until stores open at midnight on christmas day? anna? >> lis
